The members of Zenith have always been strongly involved in organizing the French database research community, in the context of the I3 GDR and the BDA conference .

Patrick Valduriez was the panel chair of the 2011 IEEE Int. Conf. on Data Engineering (ICDE). He also organized the INRIA evaluation seminar of the theme Knowledge and Data Representation and Management.

Alexis Joly was a member of the organizing committee of the ImageCLEF evaluation forum (http://www.imageclef.org/2011 ). He organized a new evaluation task on plant images retrieval within the 2011 evaluation campaign of ImageCLEF. He was chair of a community networking session on the access to scientific multimedia data within CLEF 2011. He is also a member of the steering board of the CHORUS+ EU coordination action related to multimedia search engines (avmediasearch.eu) where he is leading a work package on the evaluation of multimedia retrieval technologies.

Esther Pacitti gave a tutorial on P2P techniques for decentralized applications at BDA 2011.

Patrick Valduriez was keynote speaker at DEXA 2011.
